AWHPC Takes a Stand for Wyoming’s Last Mustangs
On Wednesday, December 17, AWHPC filed a motion to intervene in the State of Wyoming’s lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The lawsuit, which continues Wyoming ranchers’ legal assault on mustangs, seeks the removal of hundreds of additional wild horses from public lands in the state. Also last week, we filed the opening brief in our lawsuit against the BLM for its massive roundup of 1,263 wild horses from the Wyoming Checkerboard. Read more about our lawsuit against the BLM here.
We are joined in both legal actions by our coalition partner The Cloud Foundation, photographers Carol Walker and Kimerlee Curyl, and our founding organization Return to Freedom. AWHPC is committed to providing Wyoming’s wild horses a powerful voice and vigorous defense in federal court. Thank you to everyone who donated to support these legal actions. With fewer than 2,500 wild horses left in Wyoming, this work could not be more important.
